"My own recipe, made for a filling, healthy breakfast or anytime you need a quick, healthy snack. Dice the apples according to how you like them, make them small if you don't like tasting big pieces of apple in your breads. Use 2 large eggs if you like the bread moister and melty. Otherwise 1 large egg will get you a very dense bread."

"Awesome! This is a hearty recipe that goes well with coffee and keeps you full for hours. My only change to the recipe is the cooking duration. I had to cook it for 50 minutes. <br/><br/>I love the fact that it used brown sugar instead of white. Next time I'm thinking about adding walnuts."
"Beautiful! I made 3 mini loaves out of this recipe. I also added golden raisins, and substituted Stevia herb powder for 1/2 cup of the brown sugar. The recipe does not state where to add the oats, but I assumed with the flour/dry mixture."
"This was my first attempt at gluten-free baking, though it's not a GF recipe. Yielded a dense, VERY moist loaf but took longer to bake - about 12-15 extra minutes. After 30 minutes the top had crisped up beautifully so I covered it with foil for the remaining baking time. I made the following changes: 1. replaced the flour with Bob's all-purpose baking flour 2. replaced the straight brown sugar with 6 Tbsp of Splenda brown sugar blend 3. added about an ounce of raisins, 1/4 tsp each nutmeg and allspice, and 2 tsp of vanilla extract 4. used 1/4 cup egg beaters instead of an egg (it was all I had on hand) Also sprinkled the top with raw sugar and flax meal before baking. Wonderful recipe, thank you!"
"I doubled the recipe and changed a few things: no salt, a little less baking soda, extra spices (cloves, ginger, nutmeg, etc), some raisins since I only had half an apple on hand, and less water. I was really surprised by how much the bread rose--a lot of times I get a really dense bread with this type of recipe, but this had a great density and texture. I also used less sugar in the bread and added some cinnamon sugar to the top of the loaves (I love a nice crunchy-sweet top). Very happy to find a recipe that has all my favorites (apple, pumpkin, oats, spices ...) Thanks!"
"i added about 1/2 teaspoon of chinese five spice powder and some semi-sweet chocolate chips. absolutely amazing!"
"I loved this recipe, very light and fluffy and yummy. Also very healthy. I've made some substitutions....I subbed Flax seed for oatmeal and skim milk for water. I made muffins and got 12! Baking time was perfect. I'm actually making it for the second time right now. This time I'm making a loaf and I ran out of eggs, so I'm substituting extra applesauce for the eggs. Thank you for a lovely recipe, I'll use it often, it was gone in 2 days and hubby requested it again right away!"
"Oh yummy! I made muffins (got 12) and they were just delicious. I ran out of brown sugar and had to sub about 1/2 with honey, but otherwise followed the recipe. These were everything I love in a muffin. The kids want me to shred the apple next time, but I loved the larger chunks. I'll be making these a lot. Thanks for the recipe."
"This is delicious. It's actually higher in fiber than the nutrition stats show and has a high amount of Vitamin A, at least 100% (due to the pumppkin and applesauce) which is really important to consume during the autumn months. Great snack for kid's lunches - will be making again soon. Thank you!"
